ADC Analog-to-digital converter System that converts an analog signal, such as a sound picked up by a microphone or light entering a digital camera, into a digital signal. An ADC may also provide an isolated measurement such as an electronic device that converts an input analog voltage or current to a digital number proportional to the magnitude of the voltage or current.

DRAM Dynamic random-access memory Type of random-access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within an integrated circuit. The capacitor can be either charged or discharged; these two states are taken to represent the two values of a bit, conventionally called 0 and 1. Since even "nonconducting" transistors always leak a small amount, the capacitors will slowly discharge, and the information eventually fades unless the capacitor charge is refreshed periodically. Because of this refresh requirement, it is a dynamic memory More info

LLRP Low Level Reader Protocol LLRP is the RFID-aware protocol that is intended to standardize the network interface of the RFID readers. It is designed as a standard in order for developers to have a common programmatic interface to RFID readers from different manufacturers. LLRP is a "low level" protocol between software and a reader. LLRP provides very fine control over the operation of a single reader. It composed of almost 100 standard commands and provides an interface to low level functionality that is uniform across different reader vendors. Reader vendors don’t have to throw away their existing vendor-specific command language. Instead, many reader vendors support LLRP commands in parallel with their vendor-specific interface. If middleware or application software uses the LLRP interface, portability will be increased. More info gs1
